  Favorite Lure Species for Walleye
  Posted by: Beaverjack on Dec-21-13 7:19 PM (EST)

I've been trolling with a jointed Shad Rap for a while now with good results, but last June, a huge Canadian Northie broke my line and took my favorite one back into the drink after I had landed him (I really thought he was played out). When trying to replace it, I found the color configuration has been discontinued. I was wondering if anyone else uses a jointed deep diver type of lure for trolling in northern waters, and if so, what you suggest I use in place of my dear departed JSR?

  Crank Baits

I've had good luck with a Rebel Crawfish, in any of the sizes. The best color seems to be the brown with the orange belly. I've had some success with the all natural colored model and a few strikes with the brown with the chartreuse belly.

I've not tried any jointed crank baits. I mostly use floating one piece models.

As far as deep divers, I've had some success with shad, perch and bass colored deep divers.
